As the currant situation at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear reactors remains uncertain it is entirely conceivable that ‘fall-out’ will spread around the world via the multitude of ‘jet streams’ which traverse the planet daily.
Already small amounts of radiation is being detected in the United States. Some of this though may have been pre-existing and it is only the Fukushima ‘event’ which has people looking a little closer at the puddles in their back yards.
But all is not lost and no need for despair. Right now you can start to do things which strengthen the body’s defence mechanisms. There are ways to beat the ‘radiation bogy-man’ using 100% natural means!!
Lycopene is derived from processed tomatoes and is shown very clearly in a range of clinical trials and research papers to be a major naturally occurring ‘bio-antiradiation’ agent.
Lycopene is by far the strongest antioxidant found in carotenoids. Its antioxidant effect is 100 times stronger than vitamin E and is highly regarded within scientific circles as an antioxidant capable of protecting the body from radiation – man made or solar based.
Lycopene’s affects are so good that doctors even suggest that supplements should not be used when a patient is being administered chemotherapy or radiation treatment to remove cancers from the body. The very ‘agent’, in a natural form, is suggested by traditional people as being disruptive to harsh radiation and chemotherapy cancer treatments. You make your own call on which direction you would like to go with that information.
However, there is a growing body of evidence that says lycopene supplements act as a positive precursor to helping the biosystem to remain strong in the face of high levels of radiation.
Ironically, one Japanese trial, suggests beyond doubt that Lycopene can limit the amount of damage occurred by radiotherapy treatment. Radiation is taken into the body either via the skin or ingested in food particles. Here is a link to that evidence.
Here is another link to evidence supporting the fact that Lycopene is a natural protector against radiation induced DNA damage.
When you read conclusions that read like this, it makes one feel very satisfied that there is yet another naturally occurring agent which we can look at either reintroducing or taking into our bodies in increasing levels:
“Thus, our result shows that pre-treatment with lycopene offers protection to normal lymphocytes against γ-radiation-induced cellular damage”
Here is the link for this statement:
Not only is a lycopene supplement good for managing radiation issues it is also recognised for its ability to work on other issues facing the human body. Check this link out from a previously created story:
Australian based iLifeFoods, is the sole outlet for the AuraGold Farms brand of concentrated Lycopene crystals derived from 100% pesticide free Australian tomatoes. Designed to offer the user a single serve sachet, this natural antioxidant tomato based product has been laboratory tested and shown to contain 3,500mg of Lycopene per 1 kg - far greater than the stated 800mg. This assay was conducted by Southern Cross University’s Centre for Photochemistry and Pharmacology. The contents of a 10g sachet of tomato crystal is simply added to water and taken like a concentrated tomato juice but with the added boost in lycopene levels.
